Nintendo thinks that 3D will be a game changer in the handheld space and after playing the system at GDC and, more recently, Best Buy, I'm inclined to agree. This device has the potential to usher in a new age of handheld gaming and revitalize classics with a 3D remake treatment. I look forward to the launch of Nintendo's greatest franchises as well as the 3Ds online shop in the near future.
With twice the pre-orders of the Nintendo Wii and horror stories about the console selling out on the first day in Japan, it looks like this will be an exciting launch, at least for those who pre-ordered or are fortunate enough to find a 3DS in store on launch day. The system's full potential will be realized in the future when developers have had ample time to create 3DS games, but even from the start, the 3DS is an exciting piece of technology.
